    Hey Tech Community!

    About a year ago, my Samsung Series 7 Chronos Laptop (specs below) suddenly died. My first thought was that it was overheating... as the laptop has a problem with overheating for everyone! However, when I came back after 5 minutes to start it up again it failed to even light up. As if it were dead. I felt a little hopeless and let the laptop sit for a while (about 2 weeks). Upon returning, I started my laptop and it started, fans spinning, power light on, However suddenly the power light blinks 3 times and it shut off...with a very mild smell coming from the vent (mind you...it overheats for everything). This behavior stuck for almost a year! Now when I turn it on...it starts...fans blowing...the memory possibly booting...but then suddenly dies. When it does die the blue lights on the num lock and etc. quickly flash...no more 3 blinks. I have no warranty so I decide to open it up...with my basic knowledge of hardware I really cant find anything out of order (from what I can see). I unplug the battery (internal) and discharge the laptop...nothing. I remove the battery and use power directly from outlet...nothing. I'm really unsure of what to do! Can anyone help?

    Specs: Intel i-7
    Radeon Graphics Card
    Windows 10
